On Tuesday, Dunkey posted gameplay of the Xenoblade with the heading “Xenoblade Chronicles 3: Never Ending Game”, and Twitter ate him up.
The video was filled with spoilers without a spoiler warning. This got a lot of people pissed off. Well, you can watch the video (Here), and note that it contains spoilers.
A few hours after he shared the Youtube video, Dunkey went tweeted; “wow I’m trending on Twitter, guess people really liked my new video”.
We don’t think people liked the video. See some reactions below.
“Dunkey literally made a hit piece on Xenoblade 3, proving once and for all that he’s just as bad as the games journalists, he criticized in the past. Out of context pop-shots, endgame spoilers with no spoiler warning, just an altogether meanspirited and unfunny mess of a video.” One said.
Another said; “Dunkey posting major xc3 spoilers with no warning for all his million followers to see actually pisses me off. DO NOT check his account if you haven’t beaten the game”.
Another gamer wrote; “What ppl don’t understand is that nobody cares about the dunkey vid itself. The concern is that his huge fanbase of drones will latch onto the cherry-picking/low-hanging fruit jokes in the video, and they’ll become talking points among those that haven’t played it for years”.
A Twitter user also wrote; “I don’t really care about Dunkey posting a video on Xenoblade 3 cause he can do whatever he wants but hearing that the video has big spoilers without warning and he just casually spoiled the ending with a tweet is wrong That’s actually messed up. Deserves the backlash for that”.
